Missing man’s mother makes emotional plea


Yana Lemic, the mother of the 29-year-old Victorian man, who has been missing in the Daintree area for almost three weeks, has made a public appeal for information as police continue searching for the man.

Milan Lemic was reported missing in the Daintree, last seen next to his bogged utility at Bairds Crossing on Sunday, December 22.

He is described as being Caucasian, approximately 191cm tall, with a proportionate build, longer collar-length brown hair and unkempt facial hair.

Extensive searches of the Daintree area involving police and SES personnel have failed to locate the man, however, despite being crocodile country, police don’t believe the man was attacked after the animals found in the area were deemed too small to take a human.

Milan’s mother, who travelled from Victoria in the days following his disappearance, recorded a public appeal for information.

“We care deeply about our son and simply wish to know that he’s ok,” Ms Lemic said.

“We urge anyone who has seen Milan or who has any information about where he might be to please come forward.

 “Milan your family loves and misses you very much, please just let us know you are okay,” she said.

Following a review of information provided about a possible sighting of the man carrying a sports bag on December 26, police and SES volunteers searched an area surrounding Pioneers Park in Daintree Village again yesterday.

There were no signs of the man within the search zone.

“We are so incredibly thankful for everyone who has helped in the search for Milan,” Ms Lemic said.
